Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature by The Broke and the Bookish that I LOVE because then I get to interact with other bloggers, even when our reading tastes vary wildly. This week's theme is right up my alley, because I am exactly that person who judges books by their covers. A lot. I know it is not very nice and all that, but sometimes a cover REALLY has to speak to me if it is a topic I am only mildly interested in.
May 2nd: Cover Theme Freebie: Literally anything about covers...top ten covers that scream Spring, ten books with ice cream on the cover, ten books with blue covers, etc.
Naturally, I will stick to what I know best, and that is the history of the UK - funny, isn't it, since I am exactly 0% Scottish, English, or Irish (and about 90% German with a dash of Swede thrown in for good measure). Also, let's not pretend I would be able to stick anywhere even close to ten. So, without further adieu, I present the top covers (in no particular order) that I desperately love from my most favorite topic, the history of the UK. No explanations, just rows and rows of beautiful covers.
Just a note, I have read most of the books featured on this list. However, an endorsement of the cover does not necessarily mean an endorsement of the content. There are some beautiful covers that have really done me wrong and you would think I would stop judging them. But I don't.
And here is one more, just for good measure, coming in September:
Now, this is the UK cover, which I love infinitely more than the US one. So, looks like I will be doing a bit of shopping on Amazon.co.uk, won't I?
Let me know what you think of my cover choices and where I can find your list as well.
